New Tools Were Last Added: 2017-03-20

Update 2017-03-20 Finally! New tools! It has been a tough couple of weeks to find the time to work on tools- two snowstorms kept the kids home from school for four days which kept me busy and limited my shop time. I finally had some free time to get a decent list of tools together, maybe four or five dozen to add to the list tonight. There are some good user planes, some interesting and unusual stuff, and a few bargains. I am dead set on spending the next two or three weeks trying to empty my storage area to make room for the new tools coming in with the start of spring tool season. I should be listing a ton of user tools, many at bargain prices, as well as many additions to my "parts and projects" page to make room for the new stuff. Keep an eye out for new stuff posted as fast as I can get it on the list. Thanks for looking!


Tools are organized into the following categories:

The spiral mechanism works perfectly. It comes with a small wooden case of bits, all in good usable conditon. A very useful small push drill for quickly and carefully drilling fine holes.

Massive 1 3/4in Skew Rabbet Molding Plane by P. Brooks, E. Hartford, CT.
This plane was made by Peter Brooks, a planemaker who worked around 1840 in Hartford then later by himself and in various partnerships in and around CT. the plane has some wear and paint streaks on the side. The blade is still decent. I think you'd just need ot joint the sole flat and hone the blade and it should work quite well. A small project, but it's a worthwhile tool.

M. Copeland Fixed Double-Iron Sash Molding Plane.
this double-iron molding plane cuts both halves of a sash profile- the molded inside of the sash and the rabbet on the outside to hold the glass. This example cuts a small 3/8in square ovolo on the inside. It was probably made in the 1830-1850 based on the information in AWP-IV. The plane is in very good conditon with only minor wear. The blade are both in excellent condition. It could be tuned and put back to work with a minimum of effort.

Union X8 Jointer Plane.
This is a scarce union corrugated X8 24in jointer. It uses union's 12-08-03 patents for the vertical post blade adjuster and the blade design. The plane uses a slightly thicker blade than Stanley did which is beneficial in that it prevents chatter. It's a scarce plane but completely usable and in excellent working order. The blade is lapped flat and completely free of pitting. It's very sharp and has a lot of length left. The knob and tote have some minor wear but no cracks. The plane has 95% or better japanning and nice clean sides and sole. there is no damage to the cast lever cap which is frequently found with one or both ears chipped off- if you use this one don't clamp down the lever cap too tight- it doesn't need to be in order to use it and you risk breaking it. I've used this plane and it works well. the vertical adjuster take a little getting used to but it's very accurate and has almost no backlash at all. It's a fine example to use or add to a collection.

Stanley no. 40 1/2in Everlast Chisel.
This is a later version of Stanley's tough Everlast chisels. It's in excellent condition with only minimal wear to the steel cap and an especially clean back with no pitting. It's lapped clean and flat which is nice because these blades are _hard_ which makes it tough to lap out pitting. A good solid usable example

Nice Small Flat Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark but it's undoubtedly a mid-19th century British sash plane. It cuts a cute little 5/8in wide by 3/16in deep flat ovolo profile, a useful profile to decorate any edge with. The plane has some light use and wear but no damage. The blade is on the short side but clean, and is interestingly shaped. The bed has been shimmed a bit to stop down the mouth. The wedge fits perfectly and the blade projects out evenly across the mouth. It should be a fine working molding plane

*Working* 5/8in Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was made by the Perth planemaker McVicar who worked in the 1850-1869 timeframe. The plane has an extra-long fence and depth stop which makes it very easy to use. The profile it cuts is 5/8in wide by 3/8in deep which is a very versatile size for all sorts of work. The plane is sharp and works well as-is. I've cut some test moldings with it and found that it cuts well, leaving a nice crisp molding profile behind. you can see photos of the results in the pictures below. It could probably stand to be honed a bit more, but the test cuts prove that there are no mechanical problems with the plane whatever. It's a useful small profile in top working conditon.

Usable King & Co 1/2in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane needs the iron ground and honed to get it working. It's seen a lot of use. There are distinct hand prints from the former owner(s) in what I presume is tallow on the plane body. The boxing is complete and straight, if a bit worn. It'll take a bit of work, but it'll be usable without too much effort

The blade is free of pitting and bedded at cabinet pitch. It'll work well out of the box and is a useful little profile for decorating the edge of a shelf, table top, chest lid, drawer front, etc.

Very Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane has no maker's marks I can see. It does have many owner's marks, most of which are over-stamped. There is an early looking "IE" mark that I believe could be be the maker's mark but I'm not positive. The plane looks like a mid-18th century British molding plane to me. It has extremely broad, flat chamfers with a deep gouge cut at the transition points. The step is coved and the wedge finial shape is very distinct. The plane is good and clean, free of damage and only showing the expected patina for a tool of this age. the blade is exceptionally clean. It's a nice example in great shape- perfectly usable and a nice addition to a collection of early molding planes
